Availability: Ready to download

Across the country, scientists were being murdered. And the murders formed a strange and horrifying pattern—none of their dead bodies had heads! Furthermore, the trunk of each decapitated body was cauterized. Clearly the heads had been destroyed by some fantastic heat weapon. The importance of the scientists and the implications of unknown technology led to MI5 carrying Across the country, scientists were being murdered. And the murders formed a strange and horrifying pattern—none of their dead bodies had heads! Furthermore, the trunk of each decapitated body was cauterized. Clearly the heads had been destroyed by some fantastic heat weapon. The importance of the scientists and the implications of unknown technology led to MI5 carrying out an urgent investigation. They had only one curious piece of evidence to go on, one that had first been brought to the attention of Scotland Yard by the eccentric scientist Dr. Fox: each time one of the murders had been committed, the Burkholder touring Fair had been in the vicinity. A mysterious and sinister act, known as The Brains are one of the star attractions of the fair, with their seemingly unlimited knowledge and disconcerting appearance. However, if they are to blame, what is their purpose, and what will become of Earth if they are to succeed? For the first time in ebook, Mission of the Brains is a thrilling science fiction novel from time tested, master of the genre, Sydney J. Bounds. Sydney James Bounds was an English author. He wrote over forty novels and hundreds of short stories, many published under pseudonyms or anonymously. He was best known for his science fiction, but also wrote horror, Westerns, mysteries and juveniles. Starting in 2007 his name has been honored by the British Fantasy Awards' Sydney J. Bounds Best Newcomer Award (a revival of the earlier Icarus and Newcomer Awards), which is sponsored and funded by his estate.

    I've been trying and trying to get into this one... I was intrigued by the blurb, liked the cover, thought it sounded right up my alley, but I've picked it up and put it back down after a few pages (or even paragraphs) more than five times now and think that I'm just going to have to say it's not for me. There are so many things going on - I am having a very hard time with one of the three storylines (the Khan), am surprisingly uninterested by the murders line, and have been quite enjoying the a I've been trying and trying to get into this one...

There are so many things going on - I am having a very hard time with one of the three storylines (the Khan), am surprisingly uninterested by the murders line, and have been quite enjoying the actual Brains/Fair bits. The Brains/Fair portion of the story is, so far, the most robust and longest, so I thought I could keep slogging through the other parts and they would eventually either start meeting in the middle or start grabbing at my imagination to try and work their way together on their own. No dice. I keep finding myself skimming whole swathes, which I hate to do and which is usually the death knell on a book for me... Unfortunately, after struggling with that through fifty or so pages, even the parts of the book I was enjoying are starting to feel like a slog. I don't know if it's uneven editing or what, but the pace just wasn't consistent enough to hold me - or the drama strong enough to make me want to hold on (which is odd, given the premise). This one is just not for me...
